Christmas Eve was our big day with the family. We had a 22lb Turkey and all the fixings.
This is before the Turkey and the other stuff got put out ... So Much Food ... YUMMMMM!
Dad's parents came and Mom's adoptive parents came. Then there was Sister and her Boyfriend and Mom's Granny. We all ate, decorated cookies and chatted the day away. We opened the few presents that we had for each other and then played Twister and watched Christmas Movies. Granny took some time to get some pictures with Me and Sister. It really was a good day.
Today we got up and did chores and ate pancakes for Breakfast. Then Mom surprised me with one present that she had hid away so that I would have more then work to do today. It is a hunting game you plug into the TV and hunt deer on. It has a gun and everything. I got to play it thing morning while I lay in bed being lazy.
Then we got out and worked on the real Christmas present for the farm. The New Pen .... It came together fast and then I had time to ride.
First we layed out all my new panels ....
Then I layed out all the T-posts ....
Then Dad drove in the post while Mom held the panels.
This is me taking a break while Dad tried to get the tractor started to move the boat into a different stall.
Now all the calves can be kept safely off the pond when it is frozen. We also had a very special Christmas visitor that came to see the four legged residents of the farm.
Our Shareholders are always welcome on the farm but coming at Christmas just makes it extra special. I hope Ms. Karen enjoyed feeding the goats and sheep. As well as loving on Angel and the baby calves. Not to mention all the animals that just stood around and watched her as she made the rounds. I hope she had as much fun today as I did. I ended the day Hunting with Dad because he still had a doe tag to fill ..... Merry Christmas Everyone!!
